A fire broke out in a palm grove seven miles from the Coachella music festival in California, with officials determining the fire was man-made.

The “Tyler fire” -which took place near Tyler Street in the town of Coachella- reportedly burned several acres of palm trees and destroyed a few power lines, according to Cal Fire and the Riverside County Fire Department.

105 firefighters were required to bring the blaze under control as it burned ten or so acres of trees and scrub before it was contained at around 3 PM, about ten hours after it began.

According to ABC7, the fire was determined to be “human-caused” and is currently under investigation.
